From the December/January 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

The owner of the liquor license for Margarita’s Restaurant is actively seeking a buyer, according to a status report she submitted to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board on November 26. The owner, Maria Villalta, has approached Capital Restaurant Concepts—owners of J. Paul’s (3218 M St.) and Paolo’s Ristorante (1303 Wisconsin Ave.)—as well as the owners of Angelico la Pizzeria (2313 Wisconsin Ave.) about potentially buying the license, the report stated. By December 31, Villalta must submit proof of a firm deal to either transfer the license to a new owner or use it to open a new restaurant herself. If she does not, the ABC Board will cancel the license, according to an October 24 board order. Margarita’s Restaurant was formerly located at 2317 Wisconsin Ave., the current home of Sprig & Sprout.

Villalta’s license is one of two full-service (CR) licenses going unused under Glover Park’s license moratorium. The other license, one of two added when the moratorium was renewed last spring, has never been used and had not been applied for at press time, according to an Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration spokesman.

From the December/January 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

The Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.) has applied for permission to serve alcohol on a new rooftop deck. The application, submitted to the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration in mid-October, states that the maximum capacity of the space would be 48 people, including 2 staffers. The design features tables and a separate bar area, as well as a sound wall at the rear of the deck. ABRA placards will be posted at Mason Inn inviting public comment on the application.

The bar is currently disputing a noise citation stemming from an April 29 incident. At about 2:30 a.m. on that spring Sunday, a resident of 37th St. called the ABRA hotline (reachable through 311) to report loud noise coming from the bar. An ABRA investigator visited the resident’s home and noted “heavy levels of bass while inside,” and a $250 citation was issued, according the investigator’s report. The Mason Inn challenged the citation at a November 28 hearing, and a show cause hearing in the matter has been scheduled for February 20.

After a booming, chaotic opening day on December 3—during which the kitchen ran out of food—Sprig & Sprout (2317 Wisconsin Ave.) has closed for a few days to regroup. “We’re so sorry,” the management wrote to a disappointed would-be diner on Facebook. “It was bad anticipation on our part, and totally didn’t expect a line out the door.”

The restaurant will reopen on Friday, December 7 for lunch only, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Saturday, December 8, it will open for dinner only, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. On Sunday, December 9, it will open from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. You can check for updated hours on the restaurant’s website.
